Bluesound’s award-winning PULSE SOUNDBAR is to become an ‘affordable entry point’ for consumers wishing to try their hand at high resolution audio and the BluOS ecosystem. The Canadian company’s product has enjoyed critical praise and commercial success since it was introduced over a year ago. Available in black or white, the new pricing of the units has been re-jigged by $200 to $799 and $899 respectively.
Billed as a ‘perfect fit’ for your high definition TV, which acts as the entertainment hub in most homes, the PULSE SOUNDBAR is designed to be a starting component for a Bluesound wireless multi-room music system.
According to the company, the soundbar is the world’s first to feature hi-res audio streaming, and in-built BluOS – Bluesound’s home-grown streaming system – enables powerful wireless multi-room streaming to ‘all members of the household’ via an easy-to-use app available for smart devices. Bluesound also states that its product includes one of the world’s only certified wireless implementations of Dolby Surround, audiophile-grade high resolution audio capability, and access to popular and niche music streaming services.
“The soundbar category continues to be a strong performer industry-wide,” commented David Cain, Bluesound’s Global Vice-President of Sales and Commerce. “By positioning the Bluesound PULSE SOUNDBAR at an even more affordable price point worldwide, it becomes a great entry point for consumers who want to enjoy high resolution sound for their high definition TVs.”
Last fall, Bluesound announced the addition of white as a color for the PULSE SOUNDBAR, as well as its companion PULSE SUB. Furthermore, the proprietary BluOS operating system has undergone continuous enhancements providing ‘greater performance, control and flexibility’, including an expanding number of compatible hi-fi audio components and smarthome control technologies.
